Huntsman to further increase TiO2 price in Asia Pacific

Aug '09
The Pigments division of Huntsman Corporation announced that it will increase prices of all titanium dioxide pigments sold in Asia Pacific by USD $150/MT effective from 1st September 2009 or as applicable contracts allow.

This price increase is in addition to all price increases previously announced in Asia Pacific, including the announcement made on June 4, 2009, effective July 1, 2009.

Huntsman Pigments Division specialises in the manufacture and marketing of titanium dioxide (TiO2) pigments that add brightness, whiteness and opacity to thousands of consumer products; from household decorative paints and industrial coatings on ocean liners, cars and steel-framed buildings, to computer housing, printing inks and sporting equipment.

Huntsman's Pigments business has been making TiO2 pigments for 75 years. Its TIOXIDE brand has an exceptional reputation for excellence and consistency, and is trusted and recognised world-wide. The DELTIO brand, introduced in 2007, has earned a reputation for innovation in the world of titanium dioxide by enabling the free flow of pigment thus improving handling efficiency and reducing customers' energy consumption. In 2008, Huntsman's project to manufacture DELTIO pigments won the Entec Medal, a prestigious Institute of Chemical Engineering (IChemE) award for excellence in safety and environment.

Huntsman Pigments Division is an international business employing around 2,000 people in facilities in seven countries with a combined total manufacturing capacity of approximately 560,000 tonnes of TiO2 pigment a year.
